Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Violet Storm
Suggested Retail: $14.00
I have never been a big fan of cream eye shadow's, mainly because the kind I've tried in the past weren't great. It's pretty hot and humid where I live, and cream eye shadows fade and crease very quickly when I wear them. Out of everything in the voxbox, this cream eye color surprised me the most...I love it, and I mean LOVE!!! Its really a cream to powder type shadow, making it much more crease resistant, which was a huge plus :) The pigmentation is really good, I used the brush that came in the box when I put it on, and it definitely works great for cream eye shadows! This product is definitely worth the money, I can't wait to try more colors!!!
Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Pink Cherie
Suggested Retail: $15.00
I really liked this lipstick...its slightly sheer, but the pigmentation is amazing. I wasn't expecting it to be as vivid as it was. I usually apply lip balm before lipstick, but this formula is so moisturizing I didn't need it, which I really liked. This color is pretty, but I don't think it was the best for me...I'm a pink lipstick girl, but I like a darker hue. I saw several colors on the website that look perfect, I definitely liked this enough to try in a different color
Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in I <3 Black
Suggested Retail: $15.00
Mary Kay Lash Primer
Suggested Retail: $15.00
I loved how it worked with the mascara! Helped separate every lash, and there was zero clumping when this was applied before mascara...I even used this on my brows to keep everything in place. Definitely not what it was intended for, but it worked, lol :)
Mary Kay Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush
Suggested Retail: $10.00
This is a great quality brush, I used it when applying the cream eye shadow, and it worked great! I never used it for concealer, but I can tell it would be good for that too :)
For this look, I used Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Pink Cherie on my lips (with no lip liner or gloss)
On my lashes I used Mary Kay Eye Lash Primer & Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in I <3 Black
On my lid I used Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Violet Storm, applied with the Mary Kay Concealer/ Cream Eye Shadow Brush
I was curious to see how well the eye shadow would work with others, so I blended various brown/neutral shades from my Wet N' Wild palette in my outer corners, crease, and brow bone...I was amazed at how well the Cream Eye Shadow blends with other types!
I added just a bit of dark brown shadow to my lower lashes, and used my Wet N' Wild liquid liner for my upper lid.
Overall, I was very impressed with the quality of this makeup... I would definitely recommend this to anyone, and I will be trying more of their products in the near future!!!

I got my first VoxBox from Influenster last week! There are sever types going out right now, but the one I received was the Mary Kay Glamour Look, full of Mary Kay makeup :)...It has been SEVERAL years since I last tried Mary Kay, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much different and up to date everything was. My cousin was a Mary Kay consultant for years, and that girl was really good at her job...so good, she had a car from the company, lol. She would always send me bags of eye shadow and lipstick samples, and did my makeup for every important school/church event there was. It really brought back great memories when I opened up the box and found all of the goodies inside for me to play with :)
It came with 5 full size products:
Mascara in Black
Lipstick in Pink Cherie
Cream Eyeshadow in Violet Storm
Cream Eyeshadow/Concealer Brush
Yes, I even made an embarrassing little unboxing video for YouTube :)

I picked up one of the Rimmel Lasting Finish lipsticks at Wal-Mart last night...Wow, these are seriously amazing! I had already tried the matte kind, which is great for a matte, but this is much more my kind of lipstick :) I got #09, a rose/berry shade...it is creamy, very pigmented, and long lasting. I am really wishing I had grabbed a few more shades! At just under $4, they are pretty inexpensive, and the quality is good...I can't wait to try the red, it looked divine ;)

One of my summer must haves is a good bronzer...and thankfully I was able to get my hands on one of MAC's new Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Double Definition, a beautiful gold/bronze duo. There are 3 different colors to choose from...
Shape the Future, a pastel pink/soft brick shimmer color, &
Definitely Defined, a silvery pink/soft rose shimmer color...
both very pretty, but I prefer golden hues on my skin, so Double Definition is perfect for me.
As you can see here the lighter color is a sheer shimmery gold, perfect for highlighting...
the darker color is a copper/bronze, great for contouring or mixed with the gold as a blush/bronzer...
and I'm not gonna lie, I tried the gold on my eyes too, its pretty on the inner corners.
I used a very light hand at first, and even then I was really happy with the result! It adds the perfect golden touch, blends well, and feels so nice on the skin. I was a little worried that it would be too shimmery, but its not! I definitely recommend getting one of these Skinfinishes, the colors are amazing, the quality is just what you would expect from MAC, and they last quite a while! Online Shape the Future and Definitely Defined are available, Double Definition is sold out, but they do have it in some MAC stores. So GO, get one, you won't be disappointed ;)
